Buffalo Bills fans would love their team to have all of the money in the world and sign exactly who they wanted, no matter the price – so let’s turn off the salary cap.
Being the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, or Los Angeles Dodgers means you have an endless amount of money and no salary cap. You are always linked to the best players no matter the cost and each of your players is one of the highest paid at their position in the league.
In the NFL, the salary cap gets in the way of building super teams and retaining all of your best players. They’ll leave in free agency and often head to whatever team gives them the most money.
With free agency looming, the Buffalo Bills will be looking to fill several needs. According to Spotrac, the team will have roughly $25,750,000 in available funds to add to their roster. Right now, we are going to pretend that number doesn’t exist.
There are plenty of talented, young players on the market that the Bills could scoop up and use all of Terry and Kim Pegula’s money on; many of them coming off their rookie deals and are hungry for their first huge payday.
These players will cross needs off the list, be long-term cornerstones of the franchise, be quick fixes, and help establish the Buffalo Bills as one of the premier teams in the league.
